SHARING TOGETHER
Being out with friends or family, meeting up to spend time
together over a cup of tea or whatever, is one of the little joys of life.
Lord, when were out and about help us to trust in your loving care so that we may stay alert to the risk of life-threatening viruses without becoming so obsessed about the possible risks that we can no longer enjoy the company of others.
Thank you, Lord. Amen.

TODAY IS THE FEAST OF THE BODY & BLOOD OF CHRIST: The Eucharist, Pope Francis said,;communicates the Lords love for us: a love so great that it nourishes us with himself; a freely given love, always available to every person who hungers;To live the experience of faith means to allow oneself to be nourished by the Lord and to build ones own existence not with material goods but with the reality that does not perish: the gifts of God, his Word and his Body.; We rejoice on this solemn celebration of our Eucharistic faith in order to show fitting honour to the Lord and deepen our attachment to him. Lord, we are not worthy to receive you, but only say the word and our souls shall be healed!
There is Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament at St Johns today from 12 noon -3.00pm Benediction.

SVP Project Planning Application Assistance needed: The SVP nationally are exploring the possibility of having a centre in Birkenhead.

The team who are working to get the project off the ground are seeking someone with experience of CAD who may be able to draw plans of the existing building to assist in submitting a planning application for change of use so the building can offer the provision of food and training. Anyone who could assist in drawing up the building plans please contact Rose Mullarkey on 07905 952 798 or any SVP Member. Many thanks.

At a time of growing concern for the care of creation, the Church brings to the environmental concerns of our time the perspective of Gods creation and the place of humanity within creation. The Church across the country is taking practical steps with IFM (Inter-Diocesan Fuel Management Limited) based in our Diocese & supplying all 22 dioceses and over 100 schools with 71 % green energy and with a 20% carbon effect. The offset schemes include renewable boreholes in Eritrea and a new energy plant in Bangladesh using household waste (including landfill) to reduce the methane being produced and provide renewable power. IFM is also using its buying power to drive the demand for;green gas in the UK

Blister Pack Recycling: Superdrug are recycling foil strips from tablets. There is a box at the back of church to accept these

A Message from CAFOD: The Prime Minister is getting ready to host some of the world’s most powerful leaders at a meeting in Cornwall next week. It will be a big moment, one which will see the heads of government from the G7 group of countries travel to the UK to work on plans for how we rebuild from the pandemic. But Pope Francis has warned that people in the world’s poorest communities are too often forgotten by decision makers & so we want to tell the G7 leaders that they have to plan for a global recovery which leaves no one behind. Although we cant travel to Cornwall in person to send this message, it doesn’t stop us coming together online in an act of witness. So we’d like to invite you to join us from your computer, tablet or phone at an event on Thursday 10th June at 7.00pm which will be livestreamed from Truro Cathedral. Well hear from leaders of different faiths and from communities CAFOD works with overseas, reflecting on the impact the pandemic has had on our lives and on our sisters and brothers worldwide.
